I'm on the Benriach/Longmorn tour, the Douglas Laing tasting, the whisky and cheese talk, the supermarket sweep talk, the Tannochbrae restaurant, the woodlands walk on Sunday morning, the Adelphi tasting, the Glenfarclas/Glenallachie tour and the DTC talk before going to the dregs party.
I'll be going to the call my bluff, the whisky and salmon and will be doing the DLaing tasting.
Unfortunately the festival clashes with the National Ladies Shinty cup Final, which i'm playing in, in Newtonmore, so won't be there on sat.
Sunday i'm going to the Adelphi tasting and the beer party, then heading back to Glasgow on Monday so will miss the dregs (again!) Because i'm off to Sweden on the Wed for the Stockholm beer and Whisky Festival!!
See you there!!
I was there allright, mostly did distellery tours, with N&T's and masterclasses at some of them. Visited Tamdhu, Glenfiddich, Macallan, Glenfarclas, Glenallachie, Cragganmore, Cardhu, Tomintoul, Aberlour, Glen Grant. I think that was all of them.
Brought a few back, biggest highlight: Aberlour 14 years old Single Sherry Cask, 58%abv. If you love the A'Bunadh, this will blow your mind. Another fantastic dram was a Glenfarclas 1994 single sherry cask, cask 2996. We went to buy two bottles, but they only had one left. If we can't find any through some german retailers (it was bottled for Germany), we'll probably split the bottle.

You sat opposite me, I think. Were you sitting beside a Swede called Ulf.
Did he not finish his drams and yourself and a tall man with glasses picked off his stragglers?
hahaha, yeah, Hans had one of his drams, the 15 year old. I didn't drink any of his.
What did you think of the Glenallachie, both the distillery and the whisky?? I thought it was a very nice tour, very well done. The whisky itself was fantastic. Can't remember for the life of me what you look like though.
My mate grabbed a bottle of Provenance Glenallachie from the Dufftown shop.
I'm about 6 feet tall with a shaved head.
Have a sample of my handiwork:

What were the best drams you had, all those who attended, and who post here?
One question, I believe that's me in the picture at Glenallachie. Could you perhaps send me that picture in a larger format? If you happen to have more pictures where I, or my travel companion would be on, I'd love to have those too. You can PM me for my mailadres. I'd really appreciate it.
